It was my first time touching a telescope and I was overly excited. Immediately I opt to open the second box and you know what I found? A black solid built preassembled tripod stand with superb finish.
In the third long box there was a mate green military coloured tube tightly closed from both end and all my joy quickly vanished after realizing that all I have to assemble by myself which is the most difficult task for me, anyhow I decided to start with the tube and try to look through it, I noticed a big black spot on the lens which I tried to wipe with supplied cloth but my bad luck it was somewhere inside.
I opened and cleaned it but discovered some smudges of finger on the other lens too which needed a + screwdriver to open it. I did what I could (MY BEST) and fixed it again, now the vision was less blurred comparatively and without that big black spot. Then I tried to mount Barlow lens along with 20mm which I did successfully and my next task was to mount and align the laser view finder with the help of instruction manual but I failed. I was stuck on alignment level but thought I could see at least something through it during the day time without using the view finder, but luck wasn’t with me, after mounting all as per diagrammed instructions I wasn't able to see anything at all. May be I did something wrong in mounting procedure, but am pretty sure that it will work with little help from my friend.
Supplied accessories did not please me though as Barlow lens and eyes pieces seems a compromised quality, but telescope and stand both are very well built and once this tube start working I will replace both eyepieces and the Barlow.
I personally like this telescope very much and gladly update my review and share once start watching through it.
[30-11-2015] I have some advancements now and I have seen craters of Moon with 20mm eyepiece but the 4mm piece is not very clear, barrlow is also not usable, so I have ordered a zoom eyepiece which I hope will give me some more joy and I will able to see something else apart from moon
